The climate of Radda is characterized by strong thermal excursions and never excessive maximum temperatures, favoring thus elegance of our wines. Our vineyards are located approximately 400 meters above sea level and enjoy a southeast, south, southwest exhibition. The soil has a clay and limestone structure with a good presence of silica skeleton.
The low production yield and good exposure favor a proper maturation of the bunch.
The grapes are harvested by hand and then selected on the table sorting in the cellar.
Fermentation takes place in stainless steel thermo-conditioned 50 hl and 100 hl vats, followed by a maceration on the skins for two to three weeks.
